Welcome to the Partners in Population and Development Africa Regional Office (PPD ARO) blog!

South-South is a group blog, facilitated by the PPD ARO. PPD promotes South-South cooperation in the areas of population, development, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The vision of the Partners in Population and Development Africa Regional Office is “A continent that meets its reproductive health needs, promotes the population and development agenda and thereby addresses poverty, through South-South cooperation.” PPD Africa, as part of the global South-South inter-governmental alliance, provides a platform for the promotion of and resource mobilization for reproductive health, population and development in Africa through three elements:
1. Policy dialogue;
2. Networking and building strategic partnerships in the region; and
3. Sharing of experiences and good practices.

We want to take this opportunity to invite all of our partners in members countries and collaborating countries, to not only read about the work that PPD is engaged in, but also to contribute to the sharing of information and experiences. We hope that as time goes on, that you will find information of use to you in your work coordinating your country’s South-South activities. The PPD ARO will also use this as a space to share information on upcoming meetings and events that we are hosting, as well as to advertise events, trainings, and resources of our partners and collaborators (governmental as well as non-governmental).

We appreciate all comments, suggestions, and questions. You are welcome to leave comments directly on the blog. Or, if you prefer, you are welcome to email us at aro at We hope that you will make this blog yours by contributing.
